Sir James Steven Harrison CBE (born February 6, 1960) is an English football manager and former player who played as a right back. He is the current manager of the Hungarian national team.

Harrison played for Liverpool and Manchester United over a 25 year career and became known for revolutionising the full back positions as a regular goalscorer. Internationally, he played for England and earned 212 caps, a record for male players despite playing as a defender he remained England's all-time top goalscorer until Wayne Rooney beat it in 2016.

He took over as manager of the Hungary national team in 2000. After taking the job he said he was hoping to bring Hungary back to the success of the Mighty Magyars of the 1950s. The success of the teams in the 1950s was actually bettered with his team winning two World Cups and two European Championships.
